Hi folks, I’m having difficulties with the following issue and wonder whether someone could give me some advice on how to proceed.
I have an object containing hundreds of blue taxiway (blue) edge lights for an airport apron (all identical), which I would like to replace with another model of mine. I know how to do this manually, but that would be a tedious work for the major airport I am currently working on. I have tried to make a component of the new model and of one of the many hundred lights already included in this object, however, when I select this component Sketchup doesn’t seem to recognise all the other hundreds of lights as similar components. I can therefore only change the component I indicated with the new model of my choice.
I have imported both the object with the hundreds of lights and the new model using the X-Plane to sketchup import model, if that would make any difference.
Is there a way to get this done with a few clicks, instead of spending several hours manually swapping those lights, either natively or with the use of extensions?
On the screenshot you can see the new object (with included light effects) at the back, and one of the many hundred old lights in the front, which I would like to see replaced by the new one. And in the background the many other lights which I would like to replace with a few clicks. (if possible)
